Old-Timey Underpants

(I'm first going to note that this isn't for writing; this is for a sewing project.  I've seen similar posts around here where it's not for writing but other details.)

In about a month, I'm going to be attending a fancy vintage underwear party.  I'd like to make my costume.

I just can't seem to find pictures of 1920's women's underwear.  I'll admit that I'm a little bit shy about using Google's image search with the word "underwear" in the search box!  (I did, though... and got nothing useful. )

Searches I've used include:

Searching undergarments and 1920's fashion with wikipedia to look for outside references.
Searching "1920 undergarment*" in Google
Searching "1920 underwear" in Google (got this interesting page: which doesn't have clear enough pictures to use.)

I'm more interested in photographs than pattern drawings, as I think they're much easier to interpret into draping, but at this point, anything would be good.

(Also:  I do just want to point out that I feel very strange asking the internet to help me find pictures of underwear.  Isn't that what the internet is FOR?)
